Ann Coulter xenophobia

Here is an excerpt from Rick Sanchez’s commentary “Is that guacamole on Ann Coulter’s face?

It’s human nature to think somebody’s trying to take something away from you even if they’re not, to hate the newest kid on the block even if he’s more like you than you think – especially when you’re being provoked by the best in the business. Yep, Ann Coulter is really good. She’s really good at making herself rich while making you stupid.

This week while Ann was trying to gin up the immigration paranoia by playing to the worst in all of us by calling Mexican immigrants in the United States “a deficient culture made up mostly of peasants who are much more dangerous than ISIS,” there was some actual news derived not from hate-filled anecdotes, but from real metrics.

“Immigrants, Latinos Helped Drive Business Creation Last Year” is the headline the Wall Street Journal – hardly a bastion of liberalism – chose to use for a newly released report on U.S. startup activity for 2014. The study compiled by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, a Kansas City nonprofit, explains that immigrant entrepreneurs launched 28.5% of the new businesses in 2014, up from 25.9% a year before and just 13.3% in 1996.

Researchers found that immigrants started new companies or became self-employed at nearly twice the rate of native-born Americans, even though they made up only 12.9% of the U.S. population. Latino new business creators also climbed to 22.1% in 2014 from 20.4% in 2013 and just 10% in 1996, the study found, while they make up only 17.1% of the U.S. population.

Not bad for a bunch of lowly peasants, huh, Ann?

I can’t imagine anyone but Ann proclaiming that 17 percent of the population of the United States is more dangerous than ISIS, but that’s exactly what Ann told Hispanic anchorman Jorge Ramos – who seemed either too unprepared or too dumbfounded by the comment to respond.

It is one thing to rant against illegal immigrants because they are in the USA illegally.
It is another thing to rant against legal immigrants because they come from a particular Hispanic nation. The former is acceptable; the latter is shameful.

Coulter is correct to rant about criminal behavior committed by immigrants who are in the USA illegally. Had she limited herself to ranting about just that, then her ranting wouldn’t be controversial. The USA has enough native-born criminals that none need to be imported.

However, Coulter seems to rant about legal immigrants as well as illegal ones. Here is an excerpt from her new book ¡Adios, America!.

According to the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, Mexican immigrants or those of Mexican descent send at least $20 billion out of America back to their relatives in Mexico each year. No wonder immigrants are so reliant on welfare — they’re sending so much of it out of the country! Twenty billion dollars is significantly more — about a quarter more — than the amount of money the United States sends to Mexico in direct foreign aid. The $20 billion being sent to immigrants’ grandmothers in Chiapas is forever eliminated from the American economy — unavailable for investment in American companies, the purchase of American products, or hiring American workers. That’s a cost of immigration that Americans are never told about.

Conservatives and Republicans tend to agree that people have a right to decide how to use money that they have earned, but not Coulter. So what if legal Mexican immigrants and Americans of Mexican descent earn money in the USA and then share some of that earned money with poorer relatives living elsewhere? That self-earned money must be used to support local strangers, not one’s own relatives. . . /sarc

In her above-quoted book excerpt, Coulter isn’t promoting values that are conservative or Republican. Instead, she is promoting her own brand of ethnocentrism. Go figure.
